World of Warcraft is Blizzard Entertainment’s flagship MMORPG and arguably its most popular product on the market. As an MMO, players have to pay a monthly subscription or purchase game time in blocks. There were quite a few options for buying World of Warcraft game time, but that’s all changed today — now, you can only buy game time in 60-day increments.
Announced via the forums (spotted by WoWHead), Blizzard announced the change after a review of their available services. The change only affects game time purchaseables and doesn’t affect subscriptions or WoW Tokens for World of Warcraft.
Via the forums post:
“We recently conducted a review on the available services in all currencies. Based on this, we have decided to alter the available Game Time options in the Blizzard Shop. As of today, the Game Time options of 30, 90, and 180 days have been removed and Game Time is only available as a purchase of 60 Days”
The pricing for the 60-day option is $29.99.
Players can no longer buy Game Time options of 30, 90, or 180 days. That leaves 60 days as the only option for players wishing to extend their WoW subscription using Game Time.
This will not affect the more traditional subscriptions for WoW that include recurring payments. One, three and six-month recurring subscription options are still available. Blizzard cited a “review” it conducted as the reason for this change.
However, these players are not out of luck. In fact, you can buy your monthly WoW subscription at a lower price than your 30-day Game Time Pass and cancel it before your next month’s billing. To their credit or debit card.
However, it’s important to note that some players who intend to play for only one month may be forced to continue playing, forgetting to cancel their subscription before the second fee is charged. Is that there is.
Oftentimes, players use the Game Time subscription option because they can farm in-game gold to purchase them. Making 60 days the sole option has a potential for negative side effects on players who farm gold to pay for their sub on a month-to-month basis.
Subscription pricing is unaffected, including the bundle rates you get for paying months in advance, which in the long run works out to be cheaper than just buying time upfront. However, many players tend to dip in and out of MMOs over time (WoW or otherwise), so being able to pay for smaller increments of game time is convenient for them. For those who use WoW Tokens to pay for gametime through the in-game market (or using the tokens for Blizzard Balance) , this change does affect those either.
